This series is left with only one question now. Can England create history with a clean sweep against Australia? The last time England was this strong, they won the series 4-0, with one match abandoned. While Australia are at their 34-year old low in cricket history. There is no point saying that they need to give their best, to at least save a clean sweep, as they have already tried every thing they could. This should be a learning for Australia to stick with one team. They have been missing the most important ingredient in the game i.e experience.

England

The still need to work on the middle order combination however, right now they can bask in the glory of their consecutive historic wins. They have outperformed the opponent in every aspect and they surely need appreciation for this well-deserved victory. They have shown some fine batting and bowling . They never seemed under pressure even in high score chase which is nothing like the England which we are used to. They definitely have justified their rank in ODIs. The best part is that they are relying on their strength and not doing any experiments. They might not want to make any changes and try to win this 5-0.

Australia

The only silver linings for the team in this series is that their top order batting has improved and is back in form. They need to focus and rethink their strategy. They need to stop shuffling the players as its high time to start preparing for the World cup next year. They will have to pick a side and then stick with it. This is an all time low, we have seen from Australia. They will have to buckle-up now. They will have to give strengthen their middle order and bowling which is pretty evident from this series. They might want to back the same team which was at least able to cross 300 in the last match.
